For LeadersSome leaders are officially rostered by the greater church, some are paid staff and some are volunteers. No matter the differences, all are vital to healthy vibrant congregations. The South-Central Synod of Wisconsin is committed to supporting all these leaders:

Over 300 Rostered and Lay Leaders are Welcomed at the synod's annual Leadership Education and Development Day.

Rostered Leaders in the ELCA are ordained pastors, associates in ministry, deaconesses, and diaconal ministers. Each has followed a specific course of study, for a specific leadership role in the church. Learn more about rostered leaders here. Rostered leaders are supported with education and support, with enrichment and encouragement, with spiritual and pastoral care.

Through lay school, annual events like LEAD, Missional Discovery Journey and other synod programs, your synod is helping to make a difference in Jesus’ name through you.
